Fantasy Costumes has been the largest Chicago costume store for over 50 years.

We're where Chicagoland goes to find the perfect costume for every season.

Fantasy Costumes is the largest costume megastore in Chicago. For over 50 years, we've been helping families, film crews and fun-lovers find the right outfit no matter the occasion from Mardi Gras to Halloween. Originally started as a wig shop, we’ve evolved over the years to provide a one-stop-shop for costume seekers all over the globe.

"There's always a party down at Fantasy Costumes!"

We’re more than just a costume store.

Sure, we’ve got tons of costumes for dress up and cosplay. But how about a costume store with “salon like” service? Our stylists are skilled at piecing together costumes from our selection of 1,000,000+ items as well as styling makeup and hair for the perfect look. Just bring in a picture of your costume idea and we’ll make it happen!

Stop settling for the leftovers at the department store.

Don’t let those picked over racks pick your character for Halloween. With a selection this big, there’s never a reason to settle for a costume you’re not crazy for. If you want to be Spiderman, we can help you with everything but the acrobatics. From affordable costumes to professional costume rentals, we’ll dress you up on any budget.

We’re open 24/7 around Halloween!

Nobody has a better selection of complete costumes, wigs, makeup and accessories including our huge selection of masquerade masks. We're open all year, and 24/7 the week before Halloween. Run out of makeup? Need a new wig? We’re here for you no matter what time it is.

We’re easy to get to off the Kennedy Expressway.

The store's history

The store got its start back in the 1960s as longtime owner George Garcia transitioned from selling wigs out of his car to owning five large costume stores throughout the city of Chicago. The last remaining (and largest) store was opened in 1969 in the Six Corners area of Chicago. Back in the 60s, this area was a large commercial shopping district on the Northwest side of Chicago. The shop was originally known for its custom wig selection but gradually developed into a sprawling 20,000 square foot store carrying everything a costume lover could desire, all year round. The store's mission hasn’t changed over the last five decades: help customers look great while having fun. And it's OK to get a little crazy.

Fantasy Costumes is the authority on all things dress-up. Though we're proud of being the best and largest Halloween store in Chicago, we serve a variety of different communities including television and film crews shooting in the Chicago area, cosplayers and fans attending the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2), Wizard World, and businesses throwing themed events.
